Your generous support helps ASU Gammage continue to impact the cultural life of our community.
ASU Gammage programs flourish because of support from donors who understand that making a gift to our programs makes a strong difference in the lives of so many across the Valley. More than 35,000 children and families are impacted by ASU Gammage Cultural Participation programs and performances each year. These programs can only exist with the help of many community partners and sponsors and are key to ASU Gammage's mission of Connecting Communities™.
Announcing The Golden Gammage Initiative
What started as an idea to create a distinct university auditorium, by ASU President Grady Gammage in 1957, has become a World-Class Arts presenting organization and a vital cultural and economic engine for the state. In fact, since 2006 ASU GAMMAGE has created more than $300 million of economic impact for Arizona with its Broadway series* and granted access to nearly 5 million people to world-class arts experiences. Today, ASU Gammage operates under a self-sustaining business model driven by private support and ticket sales with no funding from the university or the state. It runs like a lean, fiscally responsible business, but with the heart of a nonprofit.
As a leader in the arts world, ASU Gammage presents the best the arts have to offer as well as producing new works, artist residencies and education programs that foster the great artists of today and empower the artists of tomorrow. With the mission of Connecting Communities™, ASU GAMMAGE underscores ASU’S vision of access, excellence, and impact with innovative programs and performances that make a difference in our community.
